Reply To: Fermented Drinks


    I found this quote from Dr. Naram: “Fermented food, such as vinegar, soy sauce, tamari, yogurt, alcohol, hard cheeses and yeast-containing foods such as marmite, yeasted breads and beer must be avoided. All fermented foods are sour in nature and therefore have Pitta-increasing qualities. Whenever there is too much Pitta and heat in the intestines, fermentation is multiplied, thus resulting in gas and decreased digestive capacity. Fermented foods are also tamasic in nature and therefore contribute to dullness of mind and lethargy.“
